to the gentleman from louisiana, mr. scalise. the chair: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. scalise: thank you, mr. chairman and i thank the gentleman from virginia for yielding and for bringing this bill forward. i'm a strong supporter of the reins act and why we are bringing this bill forward is because of the regulations that have been coming from this obama administration. when i talk to small business owners in my district, the biggest impediment they tell me to creating more jobs, the biggest impediment, are the rules and regulations coming down from the federal government. the reins act says if these rules and regulations are so important and have a $100 million impact, shouldn't they come before congress and state their case? what are you so afraid of coming before the public body? president obama said he was going to be the most transparent ever. yet he has bureaucrats coming up with rules and regulations and we have hearings on this stuff. and when they talk about things kids' going to save lives, the rules have absolutely nothing to do with improving the quality of peop

was the executive director of c.o.r.e. well, farmer was in jail in louisiana and refused to come out of jail to participate in the march. and here is martin luther king, jr., a wonderful human being. wer, my met him in 1958 when i was 18 years old. this is eugene carson blake, who was head of the national council of churches. and this young man here is cleveland robinson. this man was almost blind, but no one wanted to say to him, "but you cannot walk with the group." and so he walked with us. this is rabbi joachim prince of the american jewish congress. he was born in berlin and moved to america during the late '30s. he moved to newark, new jersey, and became a leader, a spokesperson for civil liberty, civil rights. and this is joe rauh. he was one of the unbelievable leaders in the naacp. and this is unbelievable whitney young, who was head of the national urban league. >> right. >> who's been a dean at the school of social work at atlanta university. roy wilkins, the head of the naacp. walter reuther, the head of the united automobile workers union. >> and this is a. philip randolph. >> y

louisiana is cut away. you can't get there anymore. so all their supplies, all the food and all the manpower is coming from the mississippi through the confederacy coming eastbound. it doesn't happen anymore. they can't cross the river. big union controls the river. the other thing is vicksburg is a rail hub. the railroad coming from the east stops at the river in vicksburg and from there it points west -- from points west that stops. now the union army controls the railroad and they cut it off. you can't underestimate the power of rivers and roberts during the civil war. they didn't have interstate highways. they didn't have trucks. these rivers and railroads and the union army by capturing vicksburg stops all of that and the whole part of the country. the other part of this is now the mississippi river is wide open for the union army to use and the union navy to use to transport material meant food equipment, so whatever they need and to the south trade it very definitely is the beginning to the end for the confederacy and a lot of people in the confederacy know this. that is the history l
by the transportation system. louisiana talking to a manufacturer of our masuda goals, he told me were the most important things was getting those things from the market. he stopped. i said i'm in the transportation business. we are all in a transportation business. we have to get the cereal in the milk out in the morning. she was touched by the system. it will cost more for the milk. it impacts us all. in the last congress, we made some good progress. i think there are some very good reforms. we are still slowly getting the information. secretary fox will be here later today. i am encouraged. we had dinner the other night. he had dinner with several republicans. we had a great conversation. i look forward to it i did. it is always a positive thing. sometimes you have to leave politics at the door and get things done. i'm sure you will appreciate what the secretary has to say. they gave us a poor grade. we are at a point where we have got to figure out how to do this anyway that keeps us competitive in the world. there is a federal role. working with the state and the local governments. when yo
at louisiana governor bobbie gindel. this after he had earlier ripped into kentucky senator rand paul. is this healthy or self-destructive. joining us now with our political insiders. so there were no cameras in this one address. let's put it up on the screen what chris christie said. quote, i think we have folks who think they have to be college professors. i like that one. for our ideas to win we have to govern and if we don't win we don't govern. i am going to do anything i need to do to win. what do you think? >> that's politics 101. the larger issue we have are the republicans who are very unpopular have stark divisions on obamacare and on defense and on nsa. but bottom line, greg, when you have got a very unpopular president to have a circular firing squad doesn't make a lot of sense. >> but he tried to rationalize it today and said it is hill thee to have -- it is healthy to have these debates. >> we have a bunch of candidates running like little candidates and we knew they would be talking about the vast american people and the political class and not one of these candidates i
've been in louisiana, we've been all over the place as have other organizations. what you're about to see as we get to the new year and 2014, you're going to see unleashed a wave of litigation that's going to be very difficult for additional to defend. this is not what congress wanted of that's why we had section 5. >> expensive. >> the fight was brought to us and we're going to take it on. what we're going to see is really an effort to bring to light, to bring into the courtrooms and consciousness of americans this challenge to democracy. you just heard in your previous sequence that's what really this is all about. this is a real challenge to democracy. we're standing at a crossroads and have to meet the challenge. >> it feels to me like this idea that congress didn't want this is also where democracy could flex its muscle. do you have any sense, any optimism we can get a new section 4 formula that will put the teeth back in section 5 from the congress. >> i'm very optimistic but also a practicigmatist as well. people are going to have onpush for this. dr. king did what was called a peo
